A Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway train was going less than 5 mph when it collided with a Kenan Advantage fuel tanker truck, railroad spokesman Gus Melonas said.
The truck rolled over and began slowly leaking jet fuel, Boeing spokeswoman Elizabeth Fischtziur said. No one was injured.
The collision happened about 10 a.m., just north of the Boeing receiving gate along Highway 526 in Everett.
Everett police and firefighters responded in addition to hazardous materials crews from throughout the area.
Some roads on Boeing property were closed during the cleanup.
Traffic on Highway 526 was not affected, though a few people slowed down to get a glimpse.
Boeing officials were investigating the cause of the collision.
